Montana Worksite Health Promotion Coalition (MWHPC)

2013 Worksite Health Promotion Workshop: May 1, 2013
Best Western GranTree-Bozeman, MT


Why Worksite Health Promotion?

Worksite health promotion has been proven to have a substantial impact on healthcare costs, absenteeism, workers compensation costs, and productivity. Wellness is designed to help employers educate employees about health, empower them to take control of their health decision-making, change negative health behavior, and evaluate the improvement of employee well-being over time. According to Partnership for Prevention,  A Call to Action: Leading by Example, “Business leaders have come to fully realize that health is a cost and performance driver.  Investing in health not only controls expenses, but also protects, supports, and enhances human capital.  It is fundamental to a healthier bottom line.”

Montana’s Health Promotion Mission:
The Montana Worksite Health Promotion Coalition is to be a resource for Montana employers regarding the art and science of health promotion and wellness at work.
